Continuity Expert Adam-Michael James Publishes THE BEWITCHED CONTINUUMContinuity Expert Adam-Michael James Publishes THE BEWITCHED CONTINUUM
by BWW News Desk - Apr 21, 2015

Bewitched, the classic supernatural sitcom that ran from 1964 to 1972 and revolved around Darrin Stephens, a mortal man who married Samantha, a beautiful witch, is still popular five decades after its premiere - so much so, that NBC has green-lit a continuation that is slated to air later this year. For all that, Bewitched, which has legions of fans all over the world, has never had a proper reference guide. Continuity expert Adam-Michael James recently corrected this pop culture oversight by releasing The Bewitched Continuum: The Ultimate Linear Guide to the Classic TV Series. James has tackled matters of entertainment-related continuity for Hollywood studios and soapcentral.com. In The Bewitched Continuum, he tapped into that expertise to compare and contrast the 254 episodes of the series, plus explore its world of witchcraft. 'There are quite a few wonderful Bewitched books out there that cover the behind-the-scenes aspects of the show,' James points out, 'but it's the fiction and characters and magic that people really love. So my focus is on that, the storyline's overall consistencies and inconsistencies; it's meant to carry the celebration of Bewitched past its 50th anniversary and inspire people to look at the show in a fun new way.' The Bewitched Continuum has been praised by leading radio shows Pop Culture Tonight and TV Confidential, and Bewitched director Richard Michaels calls the book 'a great companion for every Bewitched fan, with insights even we didn't realize.' Chris York, son of Dick York, who played Darrin for the show's first five seasons, adds that James' offering is a 'must-read.' On top of cataloging each episode, James reveals that his 600-page book contains show photos and running totals of key Bewitched moments, as well as his concept for the finale the series never had. Noted pop culture expert Herbie J Pilato, whose literary output ranges from Bewitched Forever to Glamour, Gidgets, and the Girl Next Door, provided The Bewitched Continuum's foreword and served as James' editor. As to the enduring popularity of Bewitched, James told entertainment blog Cinephiled that 'the show got me to believe in magic - a feeling we can all have within ourselves that anything is possible.' That's a quality James did his best to pour into The Bewitched Continuum, which is available on Amazon and CreateSpace. Other works by Adam-Michael James include the musical drama The Nine Lives of L.M. Montgomery, background actor how-to Extra Extra, and Undo the Deed, a time travel story with a child abuse theme. He also enjoys writing songs and performing on stage, his favorite role being Lumière in Beauty and the Beast. James currently makes his home in Prince Edward Island, Canada, where he pens commentaries about daytime drama The Bold and the Beautiful on soapcentral.com.
